4 tried and tested home remedies for curing dark circles!

Dark circles are very common these days. Blame it on the modern lifestyle or the habit of sleeping late or sleeping less. Before proceeding towards the home remedies to cure the same, first thing you need to do is to take proper sleep of 6 to 8 hours. I know, being a mom of a young kid, it is not always easy to have proper and continuous sleep. But we can try to inculcate in our kids the habit of sleeping on time. Try to create a dark and silent ambience in the bed room. Now let’s get started with the home remedies.

1) Cucumber slice/grated cucumber/cucumber juice:


Once my sister had terrible dark circles and what she used to do after coming back from office, is to apply cucumber juice all over the eyes. It even relaxes your eyes. And guess what, the bad looking dark circles disappeared within a week or so.
You can also do that, just apply cucumber juice or grated cucumber or you can even use its slice(grated cucumber workd the best). Keep it for approx. 20 minutes and then rinse it off. Do it DAILY for a week and you would notice the difference.

2) Potato Slice:


Potato is a natural bleach and is very useful in skin lightening. You can also use potato slice in the same way as cucumber in the above mentioned point.

3) Tea bags:

Almond oil, rich in vitamin E also helps. In fact, apart from curing dark circles it also act as an ant-aging agent, thus keeps wrinkles around your eyes at bay. My hubby had a bad dark circle few months back, and we know how guys hate to apply fruits and veggies on their faces(unlike us :P), so I used to apply almond oil around his eyes every night. The difference was noticeable within 2-3 days. Just make sure to use PURE almond oil.
